More woodturning blogs

It's always good to find more woodturners writing a blog. I recently came across two that I wanted to share with you.

First is Dennis Laidler from Cape Town in South Africa. This is a new blog where David shows some of his work in woods like Araucaria excelsa, camphor and silky oak, as well as pictures of work in progress. My favourite piece so far is the Silky Oak Bowl which incorporates some wonderful textures, beading and pyrography.

Dennis also links to the blog of Andi Wolfe who many readers will already know. Andi's blog is not solely about woodturning, but as a professional botanist I'm guessing that she gets a lot of inspiration for her work from the natural world which is the theme for many of the other posts in her blog. I'm pleased to report that Andi has one of her works on the cover of the latest edition of The Crafts Report. This is good for both Andi and the craft of woodturning as a whole.

I hope that you enjoy reading these other woodturning blogs. Maybe you should start your own?
